Chesterfield Champions

Liza Bakes

For Louise and her team the key to the success of the business is a passion for authentic great-tasting food and long-term relationships.

Louise Milroy (known to her family as Liza) started her business in 2005. Her passion and talent for great food is a family legend. She started supplying home baked products to a few local delicatessens and in 2008 set up a bakery in Chesterfield at Brampton Courtyard on Old Hall Road.

Liza Bakes Ltd is now an award-winning family company producing authentic artisan cakes, traybakes and desserts.

Their premium craft products deliver distinction and value for a wide range of local businesses across Derbyshire, adjacent counties and increasingly further afield. Louise and her team are Great Taste Awards winners in 2013, 2014 and 2015, the world’s most coveted blind-tasted food awards. They won Chesterfield Food Producer of the Year 2014 in the town’s second Food and Drink Awards, hosted by Ainsley Harriott. And they were finalists for a second time in 2015.

“Our business and reputation for outstanding products and service has been achieved by investing in our brilliant team and producing authentic, distinguished handmade produce, sourcing our ingredients wherever possible from Derbyshire and local partners,” says Louise.

“We operate in a very competitive part of the food sector and working with local businesses is crucial for our brand and reputation for distinguished and distinctive products with a strong sense of place.”

“Our Fruit & Ale Cake was a Great Taste Gold Star winner in 2014 and 2015 and is co-branded with award-winning Brampton Brewery, benefiting both our businesses and importantly promoting Chesterfield as a destination for great food and drink.”
